Wilshire Consumer aka Wilshire Consumer Credit harassing you by calling your cell phone? Wilshire gives out title loans to consumers in need of money who have equity in their cars. The CFPB recently settled with the company for an series of questionable anti-consumer tactics, using phony caller ID information; falsely threatening to refer borrowers for criminal prosecution; and illegally disclosing information about debts to borrowers’ employers, friends, and family.

The company is also getting sued in a class action in California where plaintiffs are accusing Wilshire of robocall harassment without consent. The case is called Freeman vs. Wilshire. If you are having a problem with Wilshire and need help, please give us a call ASAP for a free case evaluation.

    I have a title loan with Wilshire Consumer and recently they have been allocating extra payments into an interest accrual account, instead of principal balance as I have requested. I have called them numerous times and yesterday finally received explanation as to why they are allocating funds the way they are presently doing.

    They never sent any documentation of the new changes, nor have they sent a revised contract stating how the payments will be applied. My principal balance has been the same for the past 3 months, and at the rate I am going, I will never be able to pay this loan off.

    They are stating that the new process is any extra payments you make on your account, will first be applied to current interest and future interest, and then if anything else is left, it will be applied towards principal balance. This is not what I agreed upon when I was told by the loan officer that extra payments will be applied towards principal balance that way you can pay your loan off early.

    This is not legal is it? I need someone to look into this, as I feel that they are taking advantage of many decent people who are making timely payments and are just stealing money from us,

    Any changes made to current contracts should be acknowledged by the borrowers correct? This company is very shady and they will never call you back, or return calls. You have to harass them daily with calls regarding status on your account. They never let you speak to someone in accounting who manages the payments. They sent a payment history with all payments and in the beginning it was going towards principal balance.

    Can someone please contact me and advise on whether there is something here to look into? Thank you kindly.
